    VMWare is way too resource hungry, unless you've got a damn fast system there.

    I used to be running 3 virtual OSes (Win98, Mdk 8.2 and RHL 7.3) just to get the idea what VMWare was all abt. Running all 3 OSes was a nightmare on this slow system of mine.

    If you're planning to run Windows w/in Linux, go win4lin, that shuould be a lot faster than VMWare for Linux.
    Come cast your shadow over me
    and I'll cast mine all over thee
    Take me away, into the shades
    where there is no light of day
